What are 'I Wills'

'I wills' are about thinking about how you could make a small change to make a big difference for
the individual.

Think about:.

  • How to raise awareness or make a change to your environment.
  • The things that an autistic person may find difficult or stressful.
  • Triggers and how to relieve stressful situations as they occur (as they will in all environments!)
Remember: The smallest of actions can make the biggest difference and you will probably find that others benefit from these actions too!!
